    You know you can do that in the options for Firefox? tools/options/passwords/ the button "settings" gives you the option to clear private data.

    you might want to check out the firefox link in my signature below. Perhaps there is something there of help. My most recent extension addition --which is use extensively-- is the new "File Title" which is the same as the IE "Save As". I use it all the tiime to save these forum postings to my computer.

    Firefox has always had a File//save as. What I am referring to the name applied to the file save. For example, this specific thread is saved as
    looking for a Firefox extension. - Wilders Security Forums.htm

    I have used Firefox for so long, I forget what is new and what is old.
    I know the current name being assigned by my Firefox is more like IE than what Firefox has assigned in the past. If this has changed, then I'm glad to hear an extension is not necessary.

    u are partially correct. it wont get the right title for any forum, but it works on normal sites like mozillazine.org, betanews.com and google.com

    I believe you are talking about the standard Firefox "save page as" function. The extension I mentioned above will automatically assign titles more accurately--so that a plus for the extension. When using Firefox plus my extension on other forums, the forum name and thread name will be automatically assigned to the saved file.

    Oh, then you will be pleasantly surprised of what extensions can do for you :) Thats the joy of Firefox imo.
    The downside is that you have to have alot of RAM if you plan to have many extensions (hard not to :) )
    I have 37 extensions and they do take away some of the RAM while running Firefox, but I have 1024Mb so it is no problem. I propably could have twice that amount of extensions without any problems.
